After her marriage that year to actor Lee J Cobb, Beverley (sometimes billed as Beverly) ventured into mainstream cinema. She had prominent roles in Black Magic/Meeting at Midnight and The Master Race (both 1944), but her starring role opposite Cornel Wilde in Stairway for a Star (1946, but begin much earlier) was seen by only a few. Later she had character roles in The Robe (1953), Playgirl (1953), The Shrike (1955) and Ada (1961), her last. She and Cobb were divorced in the mid 1950s.
